Sodexo has been awarded a £45m contract with the Metropolitan Police to manage its estate and property related services across London.
The seven-year property services integrator contract, with an extension opportunity for a further three years, will see Sodexo’s property professional services team work with the UK’s largest police service to manage its estate. This includes: police stations, New Scotland Yard, communication facilities, residential and training centres as well as air and marine support units that support the broad spectrum of activities performed by the Metropolitan Police.
The team will provide a range of services including: strategic property advice; provision of IT systems; financial management; procurement, contract and supply chain management; and operations and service continuity planning.
This new contract is the first to be procured through the Mayor’s Office for Police and Crime’s new property services integrator framework. Sodexo was recently appointed sole supplier for the framework, which is available to all UK public sector organisations providing direct access to a range of property-related services and support.
Paul Anstey, CEO Government, Sodexo, said, “We are delighted to be selected as a strategic partner to the Metropolitan Police to manage their estate and workplace services. We look forward to working together to help support over 43,000 police officers and personnel in their mission to keep London safe.”
Mobilisation of the contract started this month and will be complete with full services live on 1 November 2022.
